I hope this entry is not too long… Please let me know how you preceive this. NOW….
How do you feel about eternal life? A life that has no beginning or end?
How would you describe eternity? I have heard eternity explained as “forever.” I have also thought of eternity as never ending. How would you define eternity?
What if eternity is God and God is eternity?
Have you ever given much thought to God and eternity? You may say, “Eternity…? I can’t get my brain around that concept!” Have you ever experienced a thought that went beyond your ability to reason? A thought or sense that became an experience of knowing?
The scripture says, “For so says the high and lofty One who inhabits eternity, and His name is Holy…” (Isaiah 57:15a)
God does not inhabit eternity like you and I inhabit our houses or lands. When we inhabit we live in a little space at a time. When God inhabits He fills entirely. In essence He is eternity. This is why He says He “…is HOLY…” Holy means entirely other than anything or anyone else.
The eternal gospel is the good news that comes into time and space from eternity.
There will be angels released to preach the eternal gospel… to you and me! “Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people—saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.” (Revelation 14:6-7)
Is this thought too big? Here is a law that is a part of the eternal gospel and applies to all of created time and space; both physical and spiritual realms at the same time.
“The word of God is the matrix of all creation, and He is Jesus!”
This is the scripture that shows us this law, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.” (John 1:1-4)
#1. The Word is God
#2. All things were made by Him the Word
#3. In Him, the Word, was life
#4. The Word is the light of men
Therefore, the Word that was spoken in Genesis 1, “Let there be light…” is the Word that holds all of creation together. This is what Colossians 1:16-17 says, “For by him (The Word or Jesus) were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”
This is an eternal law… Jesus the word holds all things together! “…by HIM… by JESUS… by WORD… all things “consist” which means “to stand in union with, as one…” In other word, by the word all things are held together. His presence holds yoou and I together with all of creation.
This is the eternal good news. From eternity He makes, shapes, holds together, defines, brings purpose, releases His plan, and dwells with as one.
This means you and I do not have to fear about destroying the planet. This earth will last as long as God has created it to last for the purpose for which he created it!
Do you think anyone can destroy what God has made? Do you really think the industrial society caught God by suprise? Like the men on the planet can destroy something God has made for His purpose?
This is an eternal law! God purpose will prevail!!! “You can make many plans, but the LORD’s purpose will prevail.” (Proverbs 19:21)
NOW more eternal good news… “God chose you from eternity.” You are accepted! “…he hath chosen us in before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love…” (Ephesians 1:4) You have never been rejected because you have always been accepted. Any rejection you experience from another, is a human experience that is founded from an earthly prespective of another’s opinion. Is thier opinion true? Can they tell you the truth? NO! They can only see you from their own human perspective.
Do you want to let a sinful human heart tell you who you are? Tell you if you are worthy of acception or rejection? If they have received rejection they will only be able to give rejection. When you and I know that we are accepted by God we can give acceptance to others.
The eternal gospel is truth that comes from the WORD, JESUS who has spoken from eternity. This gospel or good news holds the world together and also holds us together. What He has spoken is good news.
How does this sound to you? Does your spirit connect with the Eternal Spirit of Jesus that is the LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS?
“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.”
As you live your life today, remember the Law of Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus is eternal. The Word of God is eternal. The law of heaven and earth is eternal and His law changes me when I agree with HIM!!!
This is the LIFE OF THE SPIRIT! Have a eternally brightened day!
